    And then claimed a much harder cross coming through a crowd of players later in the match.

    The slightest touch on the first cross by any one of three players and he is wrong footed, stay on his line and hope to react.

    But instead he didn’t react at all
    The cross hit him, he didn’t save it

    He looked "scared". Now I'm not saying it is a conscious thing. We don't know what could be going on in his life off the pitch.

    No it didn’t. Antonio got on the end of the cross.

    Sorry he did
    And that hit Hugo
    Not Hugo saved it. I mean it can be argued when a player makes a block unintentionally it’s good but when it’s a keeper falling over ... and they score straight away it’s not good

    I think you're being overly harsh tbh Bedford. The cross from Bowen was nicely shaped into the space (he had plenty of time with Reggie taken out), Hugo'd have had to go through several players from both sides to claim/punch the ball when it was at catchable height - considering Antonio ends up volleying it. And he made the first save, it was a little unlucky it fell perfectly for Antonio and not to Tanganga or Dier to clear.

    antonio toe poked it almost in the same spot Hugo was before he started back pedalling
    Hugo goes forwards there and uses his hands and he has a real chance of dealing with it
    Instead he steps backwards with 4 steps and that’s it... he does it too often now

    He should have claimed it at the near side corner of the 6yd box for me, that gets him to the ball at a catchable height before it’s anywhere near the bundle of players, there is a clear path for him to move into.

    Except it wasn't it, he saved it. They then get the follow up and it counts for nothing.

    Hugo's had some below average outings recently, but I don't think the goalkeeper is the problem with that goal. When you give a guy forever and a day to shape one into the box, and you don't track runners across the face of goal, you're going to be in trouble.

    Generally this season he hasn’t inspired confidence and that could be affecting an already poor defence

    Also he should never still be captain after the drunk driving matter
    Bad mistake by Poch

    If it was a one off I’d get it
    It’s regularly happening now

    Big difference between the ball hitting you abs you saving it IMO
    He didn’t save it. The shot hit him as he was falling

    He was brilliant up until 6/7 games ago
    But as soon as we have gone more attacking he has gone backwards, non-figuratively

    I disagree, plenty of point blank saves are about positioning yourself to be able to get in the way, basically, which he does. If it comes off his leg and Tanganga can clear, the narrative would be a little different imo.

    Yeah their called lucky saves
    I mean falling over and having the ball poked in your direction isn’t a coachable skill

    All keepers make mistakes even the great ones, but Lloris is making far more then he used to and as a ex defender i would hate to have to play in front of a keeper who you can not trust. Not excusing our CBs but knowing that you have no idea if you keeper is coming out for the ball or staying stuck on his line is not going to give confidence.

    Can not remember him having such a poor season as he has this year.

    I think that's a bit harsh. @Bedfordspurs is right, up to 6 or 7 games ago, I thought he was having a great season. And he'd been excellent at the back end of last year after a couple of dodgy seasons before that. The mistake at Palace wasn't as bad as it looked but it was his mistake and probably the first big one he made this season. Since then, he's looked ropey time and time again. I remember pointing out how good he had been halfway through the season and one or two posters said he was one of the beneficiaries of the ultra defensive system Jose had implemented. I didn't buy it at the time but they look like they were right.

    I still have confidence in Hugo but it's starting to feel that it's borne out of loyalty more than genuine expectation at this point.

    He is still generally a good shot stopper
    But he deals with crosses like a Vampire
